1970's Flashback: Super Friends

The Super Friends was an animated cartoon version of DC Comics Justice League of America, which was produced by Hanna-Barbera and originally ran on the ABC TV-network from 1973 to 1986.

The show also broadcast over the years under several different titles like Challenge of the Super Friends and The Legendary Super Powers Show, among others, but it was still the same core team of Batman, Superman & Wonder Woman and later on many more DC universe stars.

DC Comics also published 47 issues of a Super Friends tie-in comic starting in November 1976. The simple children's cartoon again made waves years later by inspiring artist Alex Ross to incorporate many elements from the old show into his award-winning Kingdom Come and Justice limited series.
